Microsoft’s freely available MySpace app lets you access your account on the move.
by on March 14, 2010
Trying not to be cruel MySpace was always something of a mess. It has follow FaceBook and tried to clean up its act but many MySpace pages still feel like a 1990’s GeoCity homepage with their ugly sprawling comment threads.
Transferring this to mobile device was never going to be easy and Microsoft has done a baseline job of providing access to the basic services.
You can read and write your emails and home page comments. Access to your profile is minimal and limited to your status. Somewhat better you’re able to easily view your friends’ status, browse photos and upload new photos easily enough. Blog access is also intact and you can leave comments though there’s no real means of updating your own.
It’s a basic offering that does enough to bring a glimmer of your desktop MySpace to your mobile, but it doesn’t replace desktop access, as in many areas it lacks vital tools that musicians will want to use.
